My 6 Chooks

I started my chicken adventure in June 2013. I NEVER EVER thought I would get chickens but here I am over a year later with 6 lovely hens who are just as much pets to me as my dog or cats. This is a collection of photos and facts about my chickens. When I first brought them home as 2 week old balls of fluff with some feathers to. ( The odd red light is from their infrared light bulb. ) First time outside. (Sorry for the bad pics, it was a cheap camera) Name: Snow White Breed: White Rock Age: Almost 1 1/2 Name: Jackie Breed: Rhode Island Red Age:... read more

Missy/Tammy's First Time Flock

My daughter (10 yrs) and I are new to chickens but we are trying to learn as much as possible, it has been an exciting journey so far......   My daughter hatched these chicks in her class room this spring and whom ever wanted to bring chicks home could with their parents permission of course...... so I gave in and let her bring home 7... as it turned out we ended up with 3 roosters and 4 hens.... we have found new homes for 2 of the roosters and are now down to a small flock of 5...... the boy that brought the eggs into the classroom to hatch said they are Red Sex Link... read more

Snappy (The Gold Link hen)

When we got 28 chicks in April (4 rare breeds, 12 Gold Links, and 12 Barred Rocks) little did we know that one would have a deformity.  I tried to keep on top of holding each one a little each day, but it was hard to tell them apart.  So I probably didn't hold each and every one.  Once they were old enough to go outside and feathered out, we put them in the coop with our 4 silkies.  This is where they all grew up until about 2 weeks before they started laying.  We moved all but the rare breeds to our bigger coop.  Until I noticed Snappy.  She had a crooked beak.  It... read more

Our "Do Whatever the Hell They Want" Chickens and LaVern

I've always heard the term "Free Range" Chickens...well our ladies have taken that to a new level. They might be just a bit spoiled, but of course, I'm sure they wouldn't agree. Wilamena, one of our Dixie Rainbows, comfy on the couch while I fold clothes. She comes in every day for a visit. She's very polite of course and oddly enough, never poops when she's inside thank goodness! Nugget, one of our Sex Links. She's always been the boldest and the first to try everything, and she's always in the middle of whatever we are doing. She's very nosy. Dixie Chick, our... read more

Yorkshire coops polish chickens

This is Poppet my lovely polish cockerel. He's such a sweet thing so friendly and loves having cuddles and being a lap cockerel. Literally goes to sleep on you. I hatched him myself and have watched him grow into such a funny creature. With him being frizzle and having a large crest his vision is not so good so listens to me very carefully and even knows his name. I have 21 polish at the minute at various ages and love them all such an endearing breed that do well confined as they can't see to well so you can really build a bond with them. Sometimes over taming them.... read more
